Risk Management Framework


Our risk management framework is designed to ensure that all significant risks, opportunities and uncertainties are identified and assessed in terms of their potential impact on key objectives, analysed quantitatively against the financial model or capital cost estimate, then managed and mitigated within a planned and structured framework. The key to this is establishing an effective risk management regime.



Risk Management 



 Risk Management Process Model


There are a number of steps to establishing an effective Risk Management Regime that are summarised below:


Initiate structured ‘Risk Identification Workshops’ for key areas of the project

Develop an overall consolidated project level ‘Risk Register’ and achieve team ownership

Prioritise all risks identified using risk assessment

Quantify the combined cost and schedule impacts of all significant risks to the key project objectives by ‘Quantitative Risk Analysis’

Develop the overall risk management strategy, procedure, and risk management plan to mitigate the risks. This includes:


  • Prevention – stop the threat or problem occurring

  • Reduction – actions reduce likelihood of risk developing

  • Transfer – pass risk to third party (e.g. Insurance policy)

  • Contingency – plan actions to come into place if risk occurs

  • Acceptance – accept possibility of risk occurring


Raise the cultural awareness of Risk Management within the project team

Establish an embedded reporting regime that rolls-up all significant risks to Main Board level and records risk performance

Maintain a continuous process of risk / consequence / opportunity identification throughout the life of the project

We would be happy to share our experience in both project and operational risk management and facilitate the implementation of a structured risk management.
